Buddy visited the Mayor of New Jersey and he wanted Buddy to do a Dr. Seuss cake to celebrate literacy. The city will be giving away 6,000 books and Buddy wanted the cake to wow everyone. He went out and got all the Dr. Seuss books for inspiration. Buddy wanted to do some very unique architecture on the cake with crazy, whacky colors everywhere. They started by making several smaller cakes that would move in some manner. Buddy’s imagination ran wild for this cake. Ralph even got in the mood by speaking in rhymes all day. The wild cake had tons of edible gadgets, gizmos, and figurines. The 6 different moving parts made the cake a challenge. There were so many characters it was insane. It was cool seeing all the Dr. Seuss characters from the books I read my son every night. The kids and the mayor were floored by the amazing cake. I think it was the best one they every made at Carlo’s Bakery.
Buddy’s wife was planning a surprise party for his 35th birthday. They had trouble coming up with a theme for the cake. It was an adult party at a bowling alley. Mauro came up with a family concept for the cake with a table top with lots of food and his entire family represented. Grace did not like the theme for the cake, so she went to talk to the guys. They decided to keep the table, but they also added a 3 tier cake to represent the bakery and a creampuff cake to symbolize Buddy’s father. The whole cast said something about Buddy and their memories of him. They somehow hid the cake from Buddy and it turned out very nice. Buddy loved the cake and had no idea about the surprise party. The family tradition of big birthdays was in full effect as so many people showed up to party.
